I get confused when I hear some on the right claiming that those on the left are anti-military.
It was the military that made me a "liberal".
See, I was an air force brat.
I was taught to not see color.
I was taught to not see gender.
I was taught to not watch who went to which religious service.
I was taught to treat everyone with respect.
I was taught to respect those who wore the uniform.
And I took those values with me into my civilian life.
I was (am) against certain military actions simply because when I ask another citizen to risk his or her life for me, I want it to be an absolute last resort.
